Win or Lose on Sunday, Seahawks Players Use Super Bowl Week to Share Their Faith In Jesus

Surrounded by a horde of reporters probing about nearly every aspect of the upcoming Super Bowl — including questions not related such as “Where’s Waldo?” and “Who is your favorite hockey player?” — several Seahawks players are enjoying their moment on one of the biggest stages in sports to share their faith in Jesus.

“God has me here for a very particular reason,” Russell Wilson, the Seahawk’s star quarterback, told reporters as he sat in the middle of cameras and microphones at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.

“Just to be here in front of all these people, to go against the odds when everybody told me I couldn’t. That’s all God. That’s not me,” Wilson, who at 5-11 has been criticized in the past for his size and ability, said Jan. 28. “My faith … brought me a long way.”

In October, Wilson and several other Seahawks — Russell Okung, Chris Maragos, Clint Gresham and defensive passing game coordinator coach Rocky Seto and running backs coach Sherman Smith — released a 15-minute DVD called “The Making of a Champion.” Each shared their personal testimony and how their faith in Jesus impacts them on and off the football field.

Coach Pete Carroll even helped out with a tweet about the free DVDs being handed out after the team’s Oct. 13 home game against the Tennessee Titans. About 30,000 of the DVDs were distributed to fans outside CenturyLink stadium. The video also is on Youtube and at makingofachampion.org.

After securing their spot in the Super Bowl, Seahawks long snapper Clint Gresham tweeted, “Hey pastors, if you are looking for a great evangelism tool, play @makingofaCHAMP for your Super Bowl halftime show!!#moac.”

Gresham, in his fourth season with the Seahawks, described his faith to Baptist Press as “everything to me.”

“… I remember being alone and empty and full of all kinds of junk in my heart, and God came in and cleaned me up and He gave me better love,” the former TCU Horned Frog said. “I just want to tell as many people about that as I can.”
